When I grow up....

Archie has decided he wants to be a space shuttle driver when he grows up and Ben is going to be a police car driver. Oh great.

Given that he'll probably end up around the 4ft mark I'm kind of hoping that he'll be changing his future career every week and will eventually settle on wanting to be something that he can be, rather than something that you have to be ultra fit and probably a certain height to do...

We might have to spend the rest of his childhood avoiding a trip to Cape Canaveral in case that fuels his enthusiasm for the job even more.
